Events from 09/18/21
From 09/18/21 9:00 am until 09/18/21 12:00 pmVolunteers will work with AWS to sort trash that has been removed from the River Terrace trash trap into 13 categories. We will count the pieces of trash and measure the weight and volume for each category. The data you help us collect will be used to educate the public and advocate for a better practice, such as the Bottle Deposit Bill. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the trash challenges of the Anacostia and what is being done to address them!
From 09/18/21 10:00 am until 09/18/21 2:00 pmThis is our 5th watershed-wide bioblitz! Last year, we were able to identify 831 species with observations by more than 191 people! This is the main bioblitz event at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, the place where the first bioblitz was held! This is a great opportunity to explore the natural treasures of your Anacostia River with your family and friends. But more importantly, it will be your opportunity to do citizen science to help us document the biodiversity of the Anacostia River watershed.
